Yarn Drive! How You Can Help Local Refugees
When refugees are placed in America, they are fleeing insecurity and danger and are in search for a better life for themselves and their families. Coming to a new land where a different language than what they may speak is spoken is a battle in itself. However, several refugees also struggle to find an income for themselves and their families. We give refugees a chance to be able to give themselves the lives they dreamed of. They are the embodiment of what the “American Dream” really is.
While we provide them with a steady income, a space to improve their English literacy, mentorship opportunities, and valuable life skills, we still need your support to help let this program thrive, so our refugees can continue to make the most sustainable forms of dignified work through unique wall hangings and weavings!
You can simply show your support donating your used or gently used yarn to us! Sustainability is the key when it comes to our materials. We use eco-friendly materials, so second-hand yarn is perfect and green!
